EVENING: Mostly sunny and hot. Temps near 90.

TONIGHT: Clear and warm. Low 74.

FRIDAY: Sunny and hot. A stray storm north. High 94.

We are now in our second heat wave of the year. Temperatures the last three days have been in the 90s and we expect the weekend to be even hotter, possibly record heat by Sunday!

The weekend will feature the most intense heat of this weather pattern, with highs expected to hit the upper 90s both Saturday and Sunday. There could be a stray t-storm or two that pops up Sunday afternoon, but any prospects for rain this weekend aren’t great. The next cold front crosses Monday, bringing our next best chance for scattered thunderstorms. Although it may be our best chance, its still does not guarantee rain for the entire Midstate.

Next week continues summery without the extreme heat.
